If you have been struggling to conceive and want to incorporate mind-body-spirit practices into your journey, I invite you to attend this rejuvenating weekend in the Hill Country at the Samadhi Yoga Retreat Center in San Marcos, TX. The Samadhi Yoga Retreat Center is located on 30 acres of pristine wilderness on a wildlife nature preserve surrounded by scenic hill country views, serene water features and a beautiful 40 foot hand built pyramid.
This retreat is for women who wish to connect and transform their relationship to their womb space and harness their true power of creation and manifestation. If you want to change your relationship to your body, feel deeply connected to a sisterhood that understands you, and feel rejuvenated on your path…
Participants will receive the Munay Ki 13th Rite Womb blessing ceremony, in addition to fertility yoga, fertility acupuncture, guided meditations, nutrition guidance, moonlight mantras, breath work, and other nurturing practices to invoke the sacred feminine within.
We will also have workshops on conscious conception, cycle syncing, and the how to better care for your womb space and reproductive health. As you work with these physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of fertility, you will be able to transform both your inner and outer world.
The Munay Ki tribe are descendants of the Incas who resided in the Andes Mountains in Peru. The ancient women of their tribe were persecuted for their sacred practices and were forced to find a way to transmit their wisdom in secret so it would not be lost with the future generations. The 13th rite is the answer to their prayer, an honoring of the 13 moon cycles and a blessing for all women who wish to clear their womb space of fear, anger, grief, and trauma. Once a woman has received the rite she is able to pass it on and therefore begin to transform and ignite the divine feminine nature in others.
Our humanity was built on ceremony and ritual. Rituals to honor the changing seasons, weddings, births, and rites of passage into adulthood were weaved into the fabric of our cultures and societies all over the world for most of human history. It is only in recent history that our modern society has become disconnected from these roots in ritual and as a result we are seeing more and more isolation, separation and astounding rates of depression. But it doesn’t have to be this way. With a little effort we can rebuild our connection to the sacred, to our communities, and ignite the divinity within us all.
Breathwork is a form of self-exploration and a powerful healing modality. It will open your heart to see the light within and supports changes in your belief system. It has the capacity to support the release of emotions, stress, and even trauma and many people report feeling a connection to the divine while doing the type of breathwork we will be practicing during the retreat.
Yoga can be a great tool for not only deep relaxation, but a when taught by an experienced professional, can help women who have experienced trauma or loss feel safe to gently reinhabit their bodies. Yoga helps to release stagnant energy and increase blood flow to the pelvic region, sending those vital nutrients that support conception to exactly where they need to be. Our morning yoga classes will have you walking on cloud nine.
Conscious conception is the practice of being present and bringing sacred intentions into your journey to parenthood. Conscious conception helps to foster deeper connections to yourself, your partner and the baby waiting to join you. It teaches you how to make space in all ways for new life to enter. In addition, by being conscious of the foods you put in your body and focusing on those that nourish you, you can help to balance your hormone and increase your absorption of vital nutrients needed for a healthy conception and pregnancy .

Mallory Jacks is a birth & postpartum doula and cyclical living mentor. She came to birth work and cyclical living mentorship through her own journey of reconnecting with her body through the Fertility Awareness Method. After making the decision to ditch hormonal birth control, Mallory began teaching herself the FAM method. First, she felt angry and frustrated that she did not already know this vital information. After the initial shock and anger subsided, she was able to recognize the immense power that she now held by being informed and connected to her cycle. She immediately wanted support other women as they step into their own power. She began her work as a birth and postpartum doula shortly after and continued to integrate her knowledge of the menstrual cycle into her daily life. As her connection to her own body strengthen, she felt called to support other woman as they explored their own cyclical nature.
